    Our first time here. We both had the salmon but different dishes. We both enjoyed. There with friends. They also thought their food was good. Reservations are a must for a Saturday night! We had them and walked on by many, many waiting for a table. If I had to describe it to someone, I would use the words “upscale sports bar”. We will likely go back.

    Our favorite sports bar. Burgers plus plated dinners. A bit dark in there, but maybe to see TVs better? Lesley was a great server.

    Food was fantastic however a bit on the salty side. Steak was great but a bit over seasoned as well as the shave Brussels but tasted great. Looking forward to going back

    The service was friendly and efficient. Our burger was excellent. The fries were unusually good, as was the wedge salad. It was a Thur evening; the interior was crowded and too loud to talk. We ate outside which was lovely and our server turned on the heater for us. We will definitely return.

    Great place to bring the entire family. Service was slower than usual, assume they were short staffed. We were not in a hurry as we were celebrating our Granddaughter's birthday. It gave us more time to spend with her. The food was good. Our server was very nice and as attentive as she could be given that she was very busy. I highly recommend making a reservation in advance. We did that.

    Service was sub-par. It was 15 minute to get our drink order. “Water”. We were there 1 hour 45 minutes. Salmon was undercooked. Been there several times and this is first time we had a bad experience.

    First time to CharBar 7 and it was excellent. Started off with a perfect toasted marshmallow old fashioned - then we had a steak salad and a smokehouse burger. Just a perfect late lunch on the patio and the service was spot on! We will be back!

    CharBar No.7 - Mountain Brook is a nice sports bar. Not a wide variety of food offerings, but what is there is good. Nice beer selection. The restaurant is carpeted so much quieter than a typical sports themed restaurant. Lots of large screens. Outdoor, covered seating available. One criticism: Parts of the restaurant is dark and I mean dark. This requires many to whip out their phones to use the flashlight. The result is bright lights in your eyes from adjacent tables.

    When we got there, I wasn’t really sure why we needed reservations 🤣 but nonetheless, the place did start to fill up after awhile. To me, glorified burger joint, though still good. The lemonade was super yum!

    Enjoyed the salmon, so good! Only recommendation is that when we arrived and mentioned a reservation, the girl working at the front said they don’t take reservations. She definitely could have been new and unaware! But we were seating right away anyway.

    Nice location. Server was good. Food was pricey for what you got. My steak was not cooked properly and wasn’t hot or even warm. The fries tasted like like old grease. To get a baked potato with a $26 steak was a $2.99 up charge which was ridiculous. The menu looked great but the way in which meal was served was a disappointment. Too many other places to go and get awesome food for the price I had to pay for this.

    Food was good, the service was great. We ordered two apps, two rounds of drinks, and entees. The manager came out to let us know they were running behind but we had no idea and everything went smoothly. Enjoyed our meals. Only complaint was the music was loud but I may have just been slightly overwhelmed.

    Overall the food was all really good, although the steaks my wife and I ordered were both overcooked. We ordered ours medium and they came out more on the heavy end of medium-well, but we did not send them back due to a time crunch. They were seasoned very well and I could tell they would have been fantastic if not overcooked, so hopefully the kitchen is advised to watch steaks more closely. I know this is not a steakhouse, per se, so my expectations were not to receive perfection. Everything else that we ordered, from the soft pretzel appetizer to the sides, as well as the food our kids ordered, was all great.

    My server was the reason for my poor experience. She spoke inappropriately to me when first meeting me. She commented on whether or not my friend would actually join me, then gossiped about her customer before me who apparently was in this situation. She had this giant nose ring in, and she seemed mostly concerned with the table of men in front of us. I’d appreciate her being coached on how to deal with different types of people. She needs to learn how to speak with the utmost respect to all of her guest.
